About
Constructed over a 500-year period mainly during the 12th and 17th centuries, the Walls of Dubrovnik are amongst the most extensive and well-preserved fortifications in Europe. Stretching over 6000 feet, the uninterrupted course offers fantastic views of the coastal city. There's little shelter from the sun, so visit during the cooler months or evenings to beat the heat and for fewer crowds. You can purchase tickets from any City Wall entrance, but a Dubrovnik Pass is convenient and offers great value. A guided tour also often includes a walking tour of the Old Town as well. – Tripadvisor

    Views of the old town are amazing as are the views out to sea.
    The walls are quite high in places so be prepared if you are afraid of heights, which I am. I also hate steps having gammy knees. However I would not miss this for the world as the views of the old town, the sea and hills are amazing. There is spot where you can descend without having to complete the whole tour of the walls. I stopped at that point but am so glad I got to see most of the walls and would do it again if I return to Dubrovnik. Not to be missed at any cost.

    Dubrovnik walls
    You came to Dubrovnik and didn't go to the walls - mistake! The walls are something that cannot be bypassed, the ticket is paid, but it is worth every euro. I'm a history buff myself, so I enjoyed every moment. The walls were built from the 13th to the 17th century for defense purposes. They are 1940 m long, and the towers are located on all four sides of the world. They are one of the most beautiful and best-preserved defense systems in Europe. With a beautiful view of the Old Town and the sea, I definitely recommend it.

    Views are stunning x
    The first thing you should book when you get here so you can work out where everything is in the Town. Stunning views , takes around 2 hours, dont rush and take it all in. some steep stairs so wear good footwear. A little pricey but if you buy the Dubrovnik card it works out cheaper.

    Worth 35€?
    I guess this is a must do part of any visit to Dubrovnik but it does seem a bit over priced at 35€. It is is included in the Dubrovnik Pass so that is well worth buying that as it also includes many museums and a bs pass. The full 2km round route has fantastic views over the city and out to sea but would be hard going for anyone with health or mobility issues.

    The wall: great views and a must-do
    Walking the wall around the old city is something you cannot leave it with without. In spite of the high price of 35 euros (same price with a Dubrovnik Pass but that includes many extras, so get that one). When you get a print make sure the QR code is clear, I was refused entry and had to get a new copy at the other end of the town, even though the museums let me in. The walk is about 2 km all the way round and will take about 2 and a half hours at a leisurely pace. The views both inward of the city and outward of the sea are really beautiful.

Thank you Alex

    Jaw-dropping views at every turn
    First, you need to be physically able to be able to walk the wall. It goes completely around the old town and takes about 90 mins to walk the entire length, take longer by enjoying a drink or snack at the few refreshment points on the way. The views outside the wall are equally as stunning as those looking inside. Do not miss doing this. It's a bit pricey (get the Dubrovnik Pass for the same price and you can also then get in the Fort and certain Museums) but so worth it.

    Unmissable. Incredible views.
    Fantastic piece of history well maintained. Clean. Amazing views. Definitely worth a visit. €35 per adult but a Dubrovnik pass is better value. Just note a 3/5 day pass still only gets you one entry to the walls/each attraction. We expected it to be once per day but no. The small print does state it in hindsight but it’s frustrating. Still unmissable.

    a must.
    A bit expensive but worth it, especially if you get the pass. Over an hour to walk them. Beautiful views at every step, whether the old town of Dubrovnik itself, or the surrounding hills and city, or the Adriatic. Fairly safe, some areas with walls which are kind of low but nothing treacherous.

    Excellent views
    Excellent wander with fab views. I recommend getting a Dubrovnik city pass on €55 per person for 7 day pass and gets lots of things to do included and discounts off other things including restaurants. City walls walk is €35 on its own. Be aware you only get one visit to the walls on your ticket. Great if the weather is fab and ok if showery too but exposed if it's heavy rain. Lots of steps to climb.

I do this walk every time I visit Dubrovnik because the views and the colours are ever-changing. The different perspective over the sea and down into the folded canyons of this millennia-old city are something that should not be missed. The light and temperatures are friendliest early in the morning or evening- the hours listed pertain to when you can enter the wall, but once you’re up there, they’ll let you stay on the wall until sunset (in July, sunset was an hour after the wall “closed” at 7:30p).

It’s expensive, sure, but this is one of those cases where money does buy 2 hours of happiness in the form of an unforgettable experience. Think of it as a worthy investment into your vacation. Unless you’re there on a super busy day, just buy the tickets at the gate as it’s much cheaper.

Bring water and snacks!! There are some cafes and restaurants where you can buy supplies on the wall but they’re very expensive. There are 3 exit/entry points so you can go down and come back up (to the same gate) if you need a break.

Walking the walls in Dubrovnik is a must do. Tickets can be purchased right at the entrance to Old Town, just inside. There area decent amount of steps during the walk, as well as some inclines. Overall, just take you're time and it's an easy enough walk around the walls. We took a couple of hours to do the entire loop, stopping to take photos and admire the scenery. There is a another point that you can descend back into Old Town. Depending on the direction you head about the walls it's a little over halfway. Be sure to take plenty of water and snacks if you want/need it. There is only one or two places to stop along the way and were typically cash only. There is one small restaurant which was crowded and the prices were pretty high considering it was the only place on the walls. I'd recommend waiting till you're back in Old Town.

A beautiful way to see Dubrovnik old town in all its beauty, some beautiful sites and excellent photo opportunities.
It takes a couple of hours and is very hot during the day, however there are of places to stop and take a break and also some shady places out of the sun. I would recommend going early morning or evening.
There are water and snack stops throughout the walls however they are expensive.

The only downsides to the experience is the lack of information- no signs explaining any history etc, we had our own pocket guide book which gave us the information on the walls.
The walls are overpriced for what they are especially with no guide books or information. £30 per person- it is cheaper with the Dubrovnik pass as you get entry into museums and other attractions plus discounts in food and shops.

Overall it was a great experience and probably the best part of the old town.

We took a walk around the city walls of Dubrovnik whilst on a one day stop in the city on a Wednesday in June. Arriving on a cruise ship, we had planned to do this activity as we had previously visited here about three years ago when we covered the city.
Docking at the cruise port in Dubrovnik, we caught a service bus to the Pile Gate at the old city. Note that to use these you must pre purchase a ticket in a local kiosk. Our original intention was to buy a one day Dubrovnik pass which gives access to many attractions in the old city as well as free public bus travel for 24 hours, however you do not seem to be able to purchase these in advance (online) nor was there anywhere selling them at the cruise port that we could find.
Having arrived at the old city we found a tourist information centre near the Pile Gate and purchased our one day card only to be told that three of the museums covered by the card were closed on Wednesday’s. This was not a great loss to us as the purchase price of the card is the same as the entrance to the city wall, our main reason for going, and anything additional would have been effectively free.
We started our city wall walk at the Pile Gate, the walk is configured in a one way anti clockwise direction and involves lots of steps and uphill sections which may be tiring in the heat if you have mobility issues. Also we would recommend taking a bottled drink with you. The walk takes the visitor around the circumference of the old city and gives marvellous elevated views out to sea, over the harbour and across the red tiled city itself and is punctuated by towers in the wall where there is more room to move about. The walk is very photogenic (so take a ‘selfie’ stick) and we thought well worth the entrance fee for the experience.
There are occasional refreshment stops available as you make your way around and these look very pleasant to stop at but expect to pay higher than average prices here. We stopped off at a café in one of the towers in the North West corner of the wall and enjoyed a glass of freshly squeezed orange in a very relaxing atmosphere.
We found a set of public toilets in the south east corner of the wall should you need one, though the wall cafes have customer facilities as well.
The recommend time for walking the walls is about 2 hours but we took time to admire the views, take photographs and have a drink so our trip lasted 3¾ hours, after which went to the harbour area.

Buy Dubrovnik card as apparently the walls are included in there. Unfortunately we spotted that too late. We went in the evening, entered around 17:30 and it still was boiling hot part of the day. I recommend to wait for the sunset light in the last tower. However it closes at 19:00, it’s actually the time when the staff starts to tell people to exit. So when the staff comes to the last tower is already 19:30-20:00 so you have enough time to enjoy your sunset and view. Don’t go in the morning as it’s too hot and most of the people go in the morning to avoid the crowd, however it’s crowded anyway.

For students in August it cost us £10 each. Note that they only accept 3 types of student cards one being the ISIC and one the European youth card which is what we brought. When we showed our student ID the man at the ticket office also asked to see regular ID and he didn't seem too pleased when I showed him my driving license instead of my passport. So if you are using a student ID make sure you have a photo of your passport as well.

We started at Pile gate which is the most popular entrance to start. The stairs up from the ticket office do look quite daunting at first but after that its not a difficult walk (For us in our 20's anyway)
The hardest part of the walk is the between Ploce and Pile gate as the majority of it is up stairs which can be quite narrow but you can leave the walls at any gate so maybe give it a miss if you think you'd struggle.

On reading recommendations we decided to go at 4pm. It wasn't overly busy at that time and the weather was getting cooler so it was manageable. I recommend looking up the times in which the ferry's enter Dubrovnik and picking a time around that to get less crowds

We didn't stop at any of the cafe's along the wall but we did get some ice cream which was at a very reasonable price served to us by a friendly worker.

The day we went there was a local water polo final at the pier and the walls gave an excellent viewpoint for it. In total we spent around 2 hours on the wall which included watching the water polo for around half an hour.

Did the city walls tour on last day of holiday in Dubrovnik
Had spent time in old city during the week visiting spectacular places walking around streets and looking at boats on the Adriatic sea
At the end of holiday decided to do a tour of city walls. Cost approx £28 in uk money.
You can by a Dubrovnik day pass which costs same but gives entrance to variety of museums galleries and bus day pass.
Well worth the time and expense to see an outstanding panoramic view of this spectacular city

The walk from Ploce Gate to Pile Gate offers excellent views. The walk from Pile Gate to Ploce Gate less so - it’s a one way system so for your own enjoyment make sure to get in at Ploce before the crowds show up! I visited right after UK announced Croatia quarantine so it was relatively quiet and seeing the city from the walls without a trotting crowd with you makes a big difference.
While the entry fee is expensive, it’ll satisfy most architecture, history and GoT fans. It also includes the nearby fort Lovrijenac (worth a visit for the views). Bring a camera and make it into a photoshoot walk, it honestly is a very photogenic activity to do in Dubrovnik.

Walls of Dubrovnik is a must do to see the Old City and the views from a higher point. I definitely recommend doing the walls later in the day (after 5 pm) as there are less people up there and it is not as hot as earlier in the day. It costs 250HRK to climb the walls if you buy just a ticket from the Walls ticket office. However, instead of just buying this ticket, I suggest buying a Dubrovnik one day pass which also costs 250HRK (they also have 3 day and 5 day passes) and this pass not only allows you to climb the walls, but it also gives you access to most of the museums as well as one free bus ride. My husband and I purchased the one day pass which is also valid for a 24 hour period and we were able to check out everything we wanted to see in the Old City with this pass and we even took a bus ride out to the ferries. I would say to check these day passes out before purchasing tickets into any of the attractions within the Old City.

This was my second time visiting Dubrovnik and always a highlight. I recommend doing it in the morning so it's less crowded and you don't have as many heads/selfie sticks in your photos. We went slow and it took us a couple of hours so leave plenty of time. I recommend going counter-clockwise. You can also purchase snacks along the way but they only accept cash and since we were on a cruise, we didn't have any local currency. Bring a bottle of water if it's a hot day!
